I was afraid someone was going to disillusion me with stories of madly playful 10 year-old Vs ;D
I often get the comment about 'how old is your puppy' too. Or when I apologise for something he has just done (like knocked someone over in his enthusiasm) they say "but he's only young" and sometimes I don't tell them how old he is.
mad is right! we've had maple for over a month and to this day she still wipes me out (in a good way). she goes from calm, to playful, to energetic, to completely insane in the span of 5 minutes. so exhausting when they're pups, but at the end of the day i wouldn't want it any other way i wish i had half the amount of energy they do! we just got back from the vet for maple's 11 week shots... she was so happy just to be around people she didn't even realize or feel the needle go in her! first vet trip, success ;D she definitely deserved all the treats she got.
